Game: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations
Available On: Playstation 3, Xbox 360
Summary: Naruto is back again and the titles are getting even longer. The demo starts with a story being told with slide shows and voice acting to create drama. This is a one player only game as you fight through three different bosses. Each time you beat a boss you get stronger and of course, so does your enemy. It’s a good way to show off the games progression. This Naruto game like you would expect is cell shaded but offers 3D environments. It’s not graphically amazing but the camera angles that come in during the special moves are great. The first level of the demo offers the help of two friends that jump in quickly at the press of a button. If you charge up your chakra enough you transform into a red animal-like creature which is more powerful and much more agile. The demo gives you an option to lower the difficulty if you keep losing, and I kept losing. The AI in this game was not giving me any breaks and I wouldn’t call this game a pick up and play. You’re going to have to read and learn how to play, there is a lot going on here.
